Would Stantz be considered a Jewish name?Doug Exeter 23:02, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

I haven't read recently the Ghostbusters Novel, but according to Fritz the name Stantz is from Switzerland.

Link as a reference Not sure how true that is. I need to research this, but Fritz usually gets his facts straight. Devilmanozzy 00:19, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it was also from a deleted scene in Ghostbusters II (the Liberty Island ceremony that we see briefly in the credits) that everyone gets sentimental and mentions bits of their ethnic origins. Ray's great grandparents immigrated from Switzerland. I think this is in one of the scripts Paul has on his Spook Central website. On Fritz' timeline, he mentions that Dr. Riddle from Ghostbusters.net confirmed "Stantz" to be of a "Swiss extraction." Mrmichaelt 01:11, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

John Candy trivia Edit

We need a link or other source proving John Candy was considered for the role of Ray Stantz after turning down the Louis Tully role. Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:48, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

I have never in any of the materials I've read, seen any reference to this. I went ahead and undid the edit. It is in the users court to defend it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:03, October 22, 2012 (UTC)
